Retro Alfred Meakin casserole dishes

Retro J&G Meakin casserole dishes

I love the shape of these retro J&G Meakin casserole dishes! The maker’s mark dates them to between 1954 and 1960, which is very much in keeping with the style of the dishes. I love the retro handles, both on the lids and on the sides of the dishes – such great retro flair! There are quite a few manufacturing defects in the glaze (see pics under ‘more’), and on the yellow dish you can actually see where someone’s touched up the glaze after the fact, although looking at how well it matches, the touch up looks like it was definitely done in the Meakin factory.

A great pair of serving dishes that will hopefully stay together – the colours contrast so beautifully!

Dimensions: Each dish measures 25cm long (incl. handles) x 22cm wide x 10cm tall (with lid on)

Price: R165 each/R300 for the pair
